Flexible Ureteroscopy and Laser Lithotripsy of an Obstructing Stone
After placing a guidewire the flexible ureteroscope is backloaded on the wire. The surgery is performed without a ureteral access sheath. After stone fragmentation residual fragments are retrieved from the ureter using stone baskets, and a stent is put in place to ensure sufficient drainage.
Reason for Ureteroscopy:
Obstructing ureter stone right side, placement of JJ stent two weeks previously.
- JJ removed seven days post-surgery
- 50% calcium oxalate 1 H2O
- 45% calcium oxalate 2 H2O
- 5% calcium hydroxyphosphate
- Stone-free on ultrasound six weeks post-surgery. No hydronephrosis.
